Similar to existing labor regulations, an employee's hours of service include each hour for which an employee is paid or entitled to payment for:

  1. The performance of duties for the employer; and
  2. Periods of time during which no duties are performed due to vacation, holiday, illness, incapacity (including disability), layoff, jury duty, military duty or leave of absence.
